The company on Wednesday sent out invites for its second event in a little over a month, taking place October 27 at its headquarters in Cupertino, California. The invitation reads “Hello again” with an image of the Apple logo.
Apple has given the MacBook’s performance a boost, and it helps OS X zip along much better. Its critical flaws remain, but the 2016 version is less of a risk than it was last year.
The MacBook is all about compromise. With more pixels than the Air, its display allows more productivity on the move and it handles basic tasks with ease. It’s the same unique, dazzling and challenging laptop than its predecessor, only faster, and with longer-lasting battery life.
A new processor, coupled with faster internal storage, memory and graphics has brought tangible improvements to the MacBook’s performance. You’ll still have to somehow manage with a single USB-C port, bolting on adapters and connectors to equip your Mac with vital extra limbs. The MacBook brings more megahertz, and I’m not talking about clock speed.
